As our skin is our largest organ,what products we use on our skin makes a whole lot of difference.The best way to ensure this is avoid chemicals and go natural in our beauty regimen.Top reasons to switch over to natural products are:-

1.) Most of the products in the market contain loads of synthetic chemicals in them,which can cause allergic reaction like redness,spotting,flaking,itching on topical application .In the long run,these chemicals can even lead to the deterioration of skin health and texture causing early aging of skin.

2.) As the skin acts like a sponge,a substantial amount of whatever is applied on the skin is absorbed and reaches the internal systems of the body.The harmful chemicals in the cosmetic products can thus cause adverse effect on the body functions and hamper in its smooth functioning .Long term effects could be certain dangerous diseases as the side effects of chemicals like parabans and minerals.

3.)Latest research shows that lot of skin care and beauty products like soaps,shampoos,lipsticks,eyeliners,face creams etc contain substances which have not been approved by the health regulatory bodies for human use and consumption.Proper continuous research on  these substances for several years can only confirm their safety for humans.Before that is carried out,using these substances is equivalent to taking huge risk with your health and well-being.Screenshot_2015-11-14-00-43-52-1

4.)Natural products are safe and cost effective.These have been used since ages and carry wisdom and real user experience  of several years and centuries.Their effect is also quite noticeable and long lasting.The methods have been altered and changed to impart the most beneficial outcomes for human race.These are easily available and can also be made using ingredients at home ,then why spend on expensive lotions and packs which can be potentially harmful too.

Go natural ! It is better to be safe than sorry.Using natural products is the safest,most effective and pocket friendly way.

GOA

Goa..

Goa is well known as a tourist destination which is blessed with balmy tropical weather most of the times and the vast palm  lined beaches. But what else is so intriguing about it that the place beckons you again and again for a revisit?

I feel along with the natural beauty what is most endearing about Goa is the happy go lucky and relaxed attitude of general people in the city.There is no rush like the metros…one seems to have ample time to  ‘stand and stare’ and enjoy the small pleasures of life.

Attitude is what makes the difference.The constant mad race to leave the competitors behind is not so strongly felt there,  even in these modern times.These aspects make it one of my all time favorite travel destination.
